Did you know that "controllable behaviors" -- overeating, smoking and physical inactivity -- account for nearly 25 percent of all US health care spending? Imagine if your employer clients could reduce these costs from their total benefit spending. To address controllable behaviors, many companies are adopting wellness programs. But are such programs effective, and do they offer a return on investment?
Employee Benefits professionals are asked questions like these every day. The ability to not only answer the questions but provide timely, effective advice is essential. For this reason, NAHU/SDAHU is sponsoring a Wellness Certification course that addresses these issues in a comprehensive overview that draws upon dozens of sources. Approved for two hours of continuing education for insurance in California the course addresses:
Communicating the need for wellness and prevention
Demonstrating the effectiveness of wellness and case studies
The business case for wellness, and guidance on implementation
Compliance and legal issues
Creating incentive for participation
Measuring return on investment
If you want to stand out among your peers and are looking for real education to improve your knowledge, this course is for you. Your clients depend on you, so make sure you have the answers.
Certification in Wellness expertise will be provided following completion of the course and an online examination with a passing grade.
Cost to attend: Member - $80 / Non-member: $105. Registration only available online with NAHU.
